obama care. >> i raised the same point yesterday. i think that you're exactly right. >> they are not liberals and hair on fire routine over and over again maybe they ought to listen to their own people. victoria is right, there is a massive i guess family desemblance going on in the republican party right now. i've always said there's no such thing as a tea party. it doesn't exist. when you go to the voting boot, it says dr. there's no tp. the tea party doesn't exist. it's the republican party. they have to own their own people. >> and to own it is to do something about it. in fact, if you look at what senator jeff sessions argued, victoria, that obama care is destroying our health care system and took issue with the notion that our health care system isn't the greatest in the world. take a listen to this. >> and for people to say our health care isn't the best in the word, why do people come here from all over the world? that is one of the most horrible things i've ever heard around here. so we've got people that die sooner than some other countries. well, we have a

-- in ramala. tell us how talks have been so far. it seems that nicole cannot hear us right now. for now, we will carry on with the truth of barack obama in ramala. he is thereafter spending some time in israel during he is due to return back to israel after spending a few hours in the west bank. i believe now we have nicole johnson in ramala. can you hear me? it seems that we once again have some audio difficulties. let's put this in some. as this visit happens, two explosions in southern israel, only a few hours ago, is a stark reminder of the reality on the ground. israeli police say that the rockets were fired from gaza. there are no reports of injuries. the european central bank says it will cut off emergency aid to cyprus if a bailout plan is not drawn up i monday. the sip it -- by monday. they are trying to find a solution to solve the country's debt crisis. on wednesday, parliament rejected an eu proposal to tax people. remain closed until next week. now we can join peter sharp. hopefully you can hear me can what seems to be on the table for parliament? to sit in at is due few hours
. when they kept saying israel has the right t defend itself by itself. obama said it several times. and now who repeated it. netanyahu also said, and for the first time, this has been the most generous american president who has guaranteed that israel will be supplied wh early advanced weapons for ten years. i think the deal is that they have agreed that israel is going to make its own decision, by itself, go and do whatever it feels it has to do. the united states will on israel, but probably not help israel, and that is fine, but the problem is, none of them are thinking about what happens the day after that to the day after when they do retaliate in they feel that it has to do something, other the regime will survive. then israel may start that fight, but it does not finish it without us. lou: and netanyahu went so far as to say in addition to what k t has laid out before us, this president went farther than any previous president and talking about israel's right to defend itself faugh. >> i don't think so at all. lou: let me get to the second half and see if i can do any better
this is the president, this is president obama's first state visit to israel, right? and ben, as you mentioned, i want to get you in here one more time before we let you go. this is in many ways, the president is making up for what are may be seen as past transgressions, whether that's the cairo speech or the tense relationship that he and bibi have had in the oval office in their bilateral press conferences in the u.s. whether that's the relationship during the campaign when netanyahu basically was a romney support supporter. how convinced are you, standing there if tel aviv, that the relationship between these two leaders is going to be measurably different, which is to say better after this trip? i think a lot will depend on how iran is dealt with. i think in so far as president obama is seen taking a strong hand on iran, that gives him a little more legitimacy to push bibi on the palestinian issue. you have to remember that in benjamin netanyahu's first term, when he clashed with president clinton, he was blamed for causing the cries cries by israelis. and this time around, people have generally s

of the relationship between america and israel right now? >> reporter: there's no question, piers, obvious to the world, not just to these two leaders, they've had a frosty and unfriendly relationship. president obama is left of center, believes the prime minister netanyahu has said some things he finds insulting or didn't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things ge
